NYC: One World Trade Center - 1,776ft -- 541m (part III)


























Completion - 1st Quarter 2011

Size - 2,600,000 sf

Floors - 80-foot-high public lobby topped by a series of mechanical floors form a 200-foot-high building base. 69 tenant floors rise above the base to 1120 feet elevation. Mechanical floors, two floors to be occupied by the Metropolitan Television Alliance, restaurants and observation decks culminate in an observation deck and glass parapet that mark 1362' and 1368' respectively — the heights of the original Twin Towers. An antenna supported by a cable structure rises to a final height of 1776'

Location - Freedom Tower is located in the northwest corner of the 16-acre World Trade Center site, bounded by Vesey, West, Washington and Fulton Streets.

Building Amenities - Observation decks, world-class restaurants, and the Manhattan Television Alliance (MTVA) broadcast and antennae facilities.
All floors served by direct elevators. Cross-over elevator banks at floors 20, 29, 37 and 45.
Ground floor contains a secure, 45-foot-high marble and glass entry lobby facing Greenwich Street, where access is limited to black cars and taxis.
Loading dock with five bays accessible from Washington Street.
Each floor served by individually tenant-controlled DHX units.
Each floor has 6w per sf of power available, with additional power if required.


Transportation - Freedom Tower offers access to mass transportation (including the A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, N, R , 4, 5, J, M, Z and PATH trains) both at grade and through an underground concourse with entry immediately outside the building and running from the new Fulton Street Transit Center to Battery Park City and the World Financial Center.






- The desired schedule for construction, calls for the tower's foundation to commence April of 2006, concrete to grade by the end of 2007, topping out in 2009 and completion in 2011.
- This building will consist of 69 office floors, and 13 non-office floors with uses ranging from mechanical to dining.
- Ground for actual construction (different from the cornerstone placing) was broken on April 27, 2006.
- A parapet wall around the roof will bring the building's height to 1,368, the same height as the old North Tower.
- The 187-foot-high base will be concrete clad in over 2,000 pieces of prismatic glass.
- The 408-feet tall decorative spire will encase an antenna with a lighting system to make it into a beacon.
- Foundation work started in July 2006.

I think we should include the pic (comparison) between WTC 1 and WTC 2. It would be awesome to start this thread off with.

No, they are from the movies.

By the way, it has 3.5 million square feet of space in total.

> Sublevels - Retail/Transportation
> 1st-19th floors - Podium
> 20th-63rd floors - Offices
> 64th floor - Sky lobby
> 65th - 88th floors - Offices
> 89th and 90th floors - Transmission equipment
> 91st - 100th floors - Mechanical
> 100th - 101st floors - Restaurant
> 102nd floor - Observation deck
> 103rd - 108th floors - Mechanical

The spire is still being designed.

Yes, 2WTC will have its own thread when it becomes official next month, and drawings come out. As will 3, 4 and 5 WTC. So when the time comes, there will be threads for like 5 different towers in NYC, all hovering around 1,000 feet.

theres no official word on 2WTC so I wont include it in the original post. Some of those pics in there are just for model sake, give people an idea of the project impact and massive ******* size.


from WNY, the height must be elevated in this picture to 1,354:

Damn, I knew I should have never given you guys the height. While there's a high chance that the height I said is official, keep in mind that the tower is still in a concept stage and many changes may have to take place. I don't want anyone complaining if they change the height again. I'm pretty sure that Vengineer knows more than I on this subject anyway. By the way, how did you guys make that pic of 2WTC? You used Vengineer's drawing, right?

some guy on WNY. Aural Ink. Did a damn good job too, taken from Venge's drawing.

It definitely isnt official but its an idea of what to expect folks.

I heard theyre keeping the slanted roof, i just wonder what direction its facing.

That drawing is wrong. It is partially my fault because I did post a cross section of that tower but then followed up saying that I totally depicted wrong. I had to translate it from memory and I screwed up. That is not how 2 WTC looks damnit. And he made that render without my permission and now its spreading through the forums spreading false depictions. I am not responsible for that render.

Aural Ink... I appreciate the efforts but the render you made on 2 WTC is a bit incorrect. That first "drawing" i made was later corrected by another version. The version you used to make that drawing was incorrect by my fault. You should either take them down or at least fix them with the corrected depiction I posted up.

It's no big deal, most people understand that it's just a guess. Sorry to upset you.

I planned on it long ago. Anytime I was gonna have a thread about it, it was gonna be 1WTC, because thats what it really is, to me, to you, and to all of NY. Freedom Tower is just a stupid nickname.

Well we have to wait about 5 and a half weeks to get the official design anyway. There are anxious people out there, and this was eye candy. Many people like the design aural made.

Do we have a collective opinion of insider info that these heights are in fact valid?

WTC II - 1,354 ft
WTC III - 1,150 ft
WTC IV - 924 ft

Hi guys,

The depiction made by Aural Ink is incorrect. It is partially my fault. Hear me out let me clarify this completely. I had glimpsed on lets call it a "goodie" and when I came home, I drew it from my memory using MSPaint. The next day I had realized that my depiction of this "goodie" was totally wrong, thanks to my nonexistent photogenic memory. I posted a revised depiction. However, Aural Ink has apparently taken the wrong depiction and made the render which you see now. It's incorrect.

Can we at least get some confirmation about the heights?

If 1,354 is in fact the height of 2WTC, then the ESB will go from first to three instantly.
